City Hall Fellows (www.cityhallfellows.org) - a new, nationwide, non-partisan, nonprofit organization formed to develop a new cadre of enlightened local government leaders from recent college graduates, is building a National Academic Advisory Board to provide advice and guidance on the development, content and implementation of the training program, “Civic Leadership Development Program.” Visit http://icma.org/documents/Civic_Leadership_Development_Program_Overview.pdf for a detailed summary of the program. City Hall Fellows places outstanding recent college graduates within the highest levels of local governments around the country in cohorts of 10 or more. The first class of Fellows is expected to begin work in August 2008 in Houston, Boston and San Francisco.
The organization is seeking leading academics in a broad set of disciplines located around the country to participate on this Board. Board members should be willing to respond to phone calls and emails and to participate in group discussions a few times a year by teleconference.
